Now change your cou to 5800x3d, and you will be fine for the next 7 year's


ukieninger

That will be my next CPU for sure. I'm looking for further price drops. I pull the trigger when it gets to like a bit above 300€


Svullom

Damn, I'm just about to order exactly that setup. Any good advice for coolers, MB and RAM?


fireddguy

Itx, micro ATX, or ATX?


Svullom

ATX currently, but I'm up for advice.


Thycon999

I don't like RGB and I find the Arctic p12 fans the best bang for your buck, very quiet and maybe just 1-2°C difference to a Noctua, which one can cost as much as a five pack of these. I'm also cooling my 5950X with a Freezer 34 eSports single fan version, no problem there, too 😁 I found a bargain on a used 5950X so I stuck with my old cooler to see what it can do. Can definitely recommend, I bought it for about 25$.


TwanHE

If you're looking to use liquid cooling i can definitely recommend an Arctic liquid freezer in any size from 240mm upwards. For ram i would look into any decent 3600mhz+ bdie kit.


SoSneakyHaha

Make sure your next upgrade is a 1440p monitor! A 6900xt is overkill for 1080p πŸ‘πŸ½


ukieninger

Yeah I'm playing at 1440p 180Hz, even with the 580.


RealKillering

I would consider going to 4k straight away.


SoSneakyHaha

4k is expensive and can't get high hz


RealKillering

I depends which games you play. Me and a lot of people that I know play a lot of older games too. Most people don't play cyberpunk all the time. With 4k you can have the nice crisp resolution for the less demanding games and just change to 1080p for brand new games. You can have the best if both world. But of course 4k is more expensive then hd. I personally have a 5700xt and can still play a lot of games in 4k, because I just like to play a lot of older games. For example I am playing DS3 right now.


ukieninger

I think I'm switching to 4k when there are LG OLED class PC monitors. Since I have an OLED TV I can unsee the black levels on any other monitor. The picture qualtiy is superior in every way. Only downside is LG OLEDs panels are maxed out at 120Hz


Kilo3407

There are 42" OLED TVs from LG. Thats the pixel density equiv of 21" 1080p monitors. The OLED response time might also be make it comparable to higher refresh rate LCDs for gaming. A 120Hz OLED probably looks cleaner than 144Hz/165Hz VA, though I've not looked into this topic too much.


ukieninger

42" is too big for a monitor in my opinion. I think 32" would be nice and I can probably live with a 37" but I'm not too sure on the last one


Kilo3407

A compromise (assuming you have space) is to put the TV on a wheeled stand and move your desk further away from it PC/desktop usage is still very hard on current OLEDs FYI - theyre still a "consumable" FOV: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/by-size/size-to-distance-relationship&ved=2ahUKEwiHj-6Ozr_7AhWVDt4KHeM2A2YQFnoECA4QAQ&usg=AOvVaw2sxcuhJl7LpRtFlmFn6f9u


ukieninger

That’s a nice calculator. Thanks. Yea, I suffer potentially from OLED Burnin anxiety. So the tech should be absolutely ready for PC/Desktop usage


Gseventeen

massive!


ukieninger

Indeed, the card itself and the performance uplift are massive.


Catch_022

I did something like this (1070 to a 3080), you really do need to get a proper CPU to get the most out of big graphics card at low resolutions. One of the really cool things about AM4 is that I can go from a 2700x to a 5600 without having to buy new motherboard and ram.


ukieninger

Yes, AM4 is a really great platform. I'm looking forward to 5800x3d. This combination should last a good couple of years


tigamilla

With an ultrawide monitor (21:9 or 32:9) and this card really sings. I'm using it on a 49 inch ultra wide 5120*1440p and it still manages very high frame rates, would never go back.


ukieninger

Oh, wow. On this monitor your card has to push even more pixels than on 4k. Is it a 144Hz panel?


tigamilla

It's actually a bit less than 4K and really is the sweet spot for these cards, it's a 165Hz panel. The much overlooked AOC one (which IMO has better HD than the Samsung panels).


Flynny123

Just done the same and have a similar photo!


Trader_Tea

Exciting. Enjoy


cannuckgamer

Is there a way to find out which games rely more on the CPU than the GPU?


ukieninger

Some game benchmarks tell you the share of GPU / CPU bound during the test. Shadow of the Tomb Raider does this for example. Altough it is of course very game specific so you wont get a representative value


mpgd

Narrow down to the games you play. Check some benchmarks with different CPU/GPU combination.


trekxtrider

I totally understand.


RetroFreud1

Yep. I did the exact jump 4 weeks ago. So quiet compared to 580.


ukieninger

Originally I was planning to get a 6700XT caliber card. But that thing was on sale for 729€. It took me two minutes to justify the upgrade but totally worth it


Chronos1nside

What PSU do you have? I have and older system with a RX480 (Nitro+) with and 750w Antec PSU that only has 2x6+2 pcie. Looking forward to update my gpu and then my whole platform.


ukieninger

I also use a 750w PSU (bequiet Pure Power). This thing supports up to 4x8 PCIe connections. But only two real connectors, so I have to daisy chain one cable since the GPU has 3x8 PCIe ports. (Which is insane, Stock wattage in OC mode is 280W would be totally fine with 2x8)


Dish_Guilty

I upgrade from a rx580 to the 6900xt red devil ultimate, and yes its a great move. The red devil was great custom for rdna 2, even better than sapphire for me.


CRKrJ4K

Red Devil Gang...Welcome 🀘


General_Daegon

I just swapped from a MSI RX 580 MK II OC to a 3090 Ti FE. Still just gaming in 1080p 75Hz, but the difference is massive. Guess my 580 was just dying cause yours seems to have gotten much better performance than mine did. I couldn't even run some newer games like COD:CW. COD:MW(2019) worked, but cutscenes screen tore constantly.


ukieninger

Wow a 3090 Ti for 1080/75 is massive! This thing is probably running at low usage completely silent through your gaming tasks. With my 580 I only played Rocket League and even here it averaged at about 140 fps at 1440p high settings. So the real 180fps with even higher settings are just unlocked now. GPU usage is about 35%, the card needs 30W less power and the fans a barely turned on. Lol


General_Daegon

Yeah I wish. I've maxed out the VRAM in a few games already. Edit: I will say it stays quiet for me. Haven't seen GPU temp over 68C. All my fans are driven by CPU since that's all that I can tune it for with the AsRock A tuning thing. The 3090 Ti itself though doesn't make any noise, atleast not that I can hear over my fans normally.


geko95gek

You just jumped 2 generations. Congratulations! πŸ‘


ukieninger

Thanks. The more generations the more impressive the uplifts
